    Hi
    I have scoured this forum for info on how to get yum update to work. Lots of posts but every way I turn I get some form of dependency error.

    Anyone know how to get around the php-xslt dependency?


    If it helps, here is the command output:

    [root@u15183165 root]# yum update
    Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
    Server: Atomic Rocket Turtle - 2 - Atomic PSA-Compatible RPMS
    Server: Atomic Rocket Turtle - 2 - Atomic Desktop
    Server: Atomic Rocket Turtle - 2 - Base OS RPMS mirror
    Server: Atomic Rocket Turtle - 2 - Project Gamera
    Server: Atomic Rocket Turtle - 2 - SW-Soft PSA 7.5 RPMS
    Server: Atomic Rocket Turtle - 2 - OS Update RPMS mirror
    Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Released Updates
    Finding updated packages
    Downloading needed headers
    Resolving dependencies
    ......Unable to satisfy dependencies
    Package php-xslt needs php = 4.3.11-6.rhfc2.art, this is not available.



    Thank you

    I havent put that out yet. Also you really dont want to use Project Gamera alongside PSA, they arent compatible.

    Hi
    ok, how do I update to a point that will work? For example 4.3.10 perhaps or is that not possible and I have to update individual items?

    Thanks

    Ok php is already up to date but thanks for the plug.

    I REALLY do not understand the concept behind this. Great tool in that all you need to type is "yum update"... if it works! What am I missing here?

    If just one dependency stops the update... whats the point? Should it not update to a level where there are no dependencies? Then when the next level is clear for dependencies yum runs to that update level.

    It just seems to me that every where I go I get a dependency error.

    Bit frustrating.

    yes it really is that easy. If you do run into dependency issues, thats because the maintainer (me in this case) did something wrong.
